This function allows you to map the ID of a document on a remote Hyperwave server onto a local object ID, allowing you to access the object as though it existed on the local server. To do so you need to know the GOid (global object ID) of the remote object. The first part of an object's GOid is the server's IP address in hexadecimal; this should be passed to hw_mapid() as server_id ; the object ID of the requested object is passed as object_id .
Note that as of PHP 4.0.5, you need to hand-modify the source code of the file ext/hyperwave/hg_comm.c in the PHP source tree and recompile in order to use hw_mapid() . Instructions detailing the change are included in comments near the top of the file.
